Anyone else think Fisher made a couple of strange tactical decisions last night against the Dolphins which could have cost the Titans the game.

Firstly, when Fins were 1st & 10 on their own 2yd line with 56 secs left, they gained just 4 yds on the play. Surely he should have called a TO at that stage and forced the Dolphins to keep playing and get the 1st or at least punt. Titans had all 3 timeouts left at that stage. Instead he let the clock run down to 12 secs and the Fins ran just one more play and then the game went to OT

Secondly, in OT, if he was happy enough to let Bironas to kick from the Miami 29yd line (the 3 plays called in that possession were bizarre IMO), then why not get him to kick on 3rd down (or even 2nd down). That way if Bironas missed he would still get another bite at it on 4th down.

Only if the ball failed to cross the line of scrimmage (e.g. was blocked) and was recovered by the Titans. If the field goal was just missed the Dolphins would have taken possession at the spot of the kick.

^ This is true.

Looking forward to staying up late this evening. Hopefully we can stay in the hunt, and the Ravens and Broncos will both lose out.....

More or less our only chance....well, one of them needs to lose out anyway...
